Liverbard Sessions 4: Daniel Sturridge

A number of Liverpool fans have complained that Daniel Sturridge doesn’t have a proper song. Here’s my humble attempt to plug that gap. You can download the mp3 here.

Headstrong Savage

Here’s a song I co-write with Chris Bradley of Savage. I realised that over the years I’ve playing in different bands with three members of Savage (Mark Nelson is also mixing and drumming on my new EP) and the fourth member Kristian Bradley is a former pupil.

Liverbard Sessions 2: No Goals

Woke up this morning with I’ve Got No Strings going round my head – must be something to do with seeing Age Of Ultron yesterday…

Liverbard Sessions 1: Emre Can

I’m working on a little side project writing some Liverpool/Football related chants/songs. I’ve decide to do this because

  • Fans are singing less at matches
  • The standard of writing is generally poor (reminds me of my old job as a worship leader!)
  • It might be fun

I’m gonna limit myself to 1 hour to recording each song and 1 hour to produce a youtube vid.

Here’s the first one

Oh April (You Made A Fool Outta Me)

If you’re feeling cooped up are you a fox or a chicken?
Another ‘somebody-did-somebody-wrong’ song
Download     mp3 demo     Chords (pdf)     Behind The Song

Couldn’t pin you down till I was stuck like glue
Heading for a fall before summer was through
Didn’t hear the sirens when you came in view
Oh April, you made a fool outta me

With a pout and a wink and a raptors smile
On your smart phone waiting for a dumb reply
Call you Cleopatra, you’re the queen of denial
Oh April, you made a fool outta me

Take a look beneath the hood tell me what’s that ticking
If you’re feeling cooped up are you a fox or a chicken?
You’re gonna bust baby if you don’t start sticking
Do I make myself quite clear?

You broke me like a bank, broke me like a horse
Your speech is so smooth now you’re right on course
Tricked me twice, tricked me thrice with your excessive force
Oh April, you made a fool outta me

A penny for your thoughts if you count them cheaply
Pennies for my eyes when I was only sleeping
Penitence is something for the old and weak
That’s what you always said to me

Didn’t want a white knight at the end of the day
Used your dirty mouth to get clean away
I was a puppet on a string that was too afraid
Oh April, you made a fool outta me

Oh April, you made a fool outta me
Oh April, you made a fool outta me

Liverbard Sessions 0.5: Suarez Is His Name

Why can’t Roy Hodgson sleep at night?
1 minute 20 seconds of punk rock football bragging
Download     mp3 demo

Who’s scored more goals than your whole team?
Suarez, Suarez
Who’s scored more goals than your whole team?
Suarez is his name
He can score at home, he can score away
Who’s scored more goals than your whole team?
Suarez is his name

Give that man a golden boot
Suarez, Suarez
If anybody should get two
Suarez is his name
He can score all day, he scores from miles away
Give that man a golden boot
Suarez is his name

Why can’t Roy Hodgson sleep at night?
Suarez, Suarez
The nightmare ‘nine’ from Uruguay
Suarez is his name
Brazil is hot and wet, but that’s not why he sweats
Why can’t Roy Hodgson sleep at night?
Suarez is his name
Who’s scored more goals than your whole team?
Suarez is his name
Suarez!
